I wish I had the same feeling about DA a Year or so ago. I feel it's gotten too commercial, less like a community. I can't put my finger on why. When DA decided we would all be better if they shared our work with everyone instead of creating the community space where we could strive. Now I see my images, watermarks removed splashed all over Tumblr. Yeah I write the blogger but they just seem to think your a complete asshole for explaining they are blogging your art without even giving the artist credit. I wouldn't do that to you, why would you think that's ok with me? So for now I probably will leave my images up here, but in the future I will take them down.
I appreciate the requests for groups or articles etc. If I don't respond timely, I apologize, I am just not here often.
Stay inspired and keep creating,
Listening to: the emptiness
